    I am trying to downgrade from iOS 9 to 8.4.1 on my 5C as iOS 9 runs to sluggish but this is the error I get when trying to install manually through iTunes.

    I have ugraded iTunes to latest version, tried different cables but same error. Any ideas?

    Perhaps you are using an install file that is for a different device?

    Yeah, make sure you select the correct file for your device.
